The Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s outstanding knock against KKR at the Eden Gardens helped his team to record its second win in this season. The win keeps RCB mathematically alive in the tournament while KKR suffered their fourth loss in as many games. His knock was the more important for RCB as star batsman AB de Villiers had been ruled out before the start of the match in Kolkata. After he achieved the three-figure mark, the star batsman AB de Villiers took to Twitter to parise the RCB captain and christen him with a new nickname.
Virat Kohli knows by a lot of nicknames 'Cheeku', 'King Kohli' but 'little biscuit' has never cropped up before. His knock of 100 off 58 balls, supported him to get the second position on the list of century makers in the tournament. He paced his innings brightly and got out on the last ball of the innings. Kohli scored 50 off 40 balls, but he changed gears in the second half of his innings. Such was his domination that Kohli took just 17 balls for his second fifty. Royal Challenger Bangalore hammered 91 runs off the last five overs to reach 213/4, their highest total of the season. Kohli and Ali shared 90 runs off 43 balls and there was no looking back after Ali's assault. KKR’s players Andre Russell (65 off 25 balls) and Nitish Rana (85 not out off 46) nearly pulled off the impossible but RCB held on for a famous win.
